1. This paper focuses on the marine foundation eelgrass species, Zostera marina, along a gradient from the northern Baltic Sea to the northeast Atlantic. This vast region supports a minimum of 1480 km 2 eelgrass (maximum >2100 km 2), which corresponds to more than four times the previously quantified area of eelgrass in Western Europe. 2. Eelgrass meadows… (More)
The cryptophyte Rhodomonas salina is widely used as feed for copepod cultures. However, culturing conditions to obtain high-quality algae have not yet been efficiently optimized. Therefore, we aimed to develop a cultivation protocol for R. salina to optimize its nutritional value and provide technical recommendations for later large-scale production in… (More)
Aquaporin-9 (AQP9), a water/glycerol channel protein, is expressed in several immune cells including neutrophils; however, its role in immune response remains unknown. Here we show the involvement of AQP9 in hapten-induced contact hypersensitivity (CHS), as a murine model of skin allergic contact dermatitis, using AQP9 knockout (AQP9(-/-)) mice. First, the… (More)
Specimens of human ependyma obtained immediately after death were immersion-fixed and studied with a scanning electron microscope. Human ependyma is nearly identical in its surface ultrastructural features to the ependyma of other mammals.
Eelgrass (Zostera marina L.) is an important organism in coastal marine waters and is highly likely to encounter exposure to multiple stressors, both anthropogenic contaminants and natural stressors. Here, we exposed eelgrass to a range of Cu concentrations and salinities, and also varied exposure route between sediment and water. Measured endpoints were Cu… (More)
